reduces to 0 at times. 15 below is the windchill in st. louis. memphis 21. we've got windchill advisories as far south as the gulf states. so, so many people waking up this morning and saying, please, tell me we have some reprieve at some point. i can't. we're going to borrow air from siberia. it will come in waves. tomorrow is not good. saturday is better. but sunday into monday, can i tell you, almost like early january. that polar air sticks. look at this. minneapolis, you wake up on monday morning, 17 below. new york city by tuesday, it's 6. it's going to be messy. real quick look at that video one more time. the sky is blue. you don't need snowfalling to make a blizzard. gio benitez is in boston with all of it. >> reporter: hey, good morning to you, ginger. you know, you're talking about those temperatures. we're feeling them. 6 degrees right now here in boston, 11 below zero with the windchill. take a look behind me. because the problem right now is
that a lot of the snow is not melting. and if you look really closely, you can actually see ice here on the sidewalk. that's what's happening on the roads making it dangerous for you. the snow may not be falling anymore, but it is blowing. 45-mile-per-hour winds hurling all that fresh snow across roadways in minnesota making parts of the state look like an arctic wasteland. windchills there as low as 45 degrees below zero. ground blizzards, now the latest threat out on the frigid roads. watch what happens when this snowplow in north dakota kicks up all that loose snow and ice, the fierce winds blowing it right into traffic creating an instant and frightening whiteout for drivers. and in new york city, this taxi driver just can't get a grip. even the trains aren't immune to the cold. passengers on this commuter train from manhattan to connecticut had to be rescued in
the busy evening hours after their train was disabled midway, left for two hours without heat or lights. and icicles falling like daggers from building overhangs, one striking this man in the head. ems treating him for cuts on his face and lips. outside of boston a two-alarm house fire over night. firefighters were hindered while attempting to put out the blaze because three different fire hydrants froze. a 3,000-foot hose was used and in philadelphia, this woman giving birth on a sled. her husband pushing her to their car at the end of an impassable street. but the baby just couldn't wait. she gave birth right there on the side of that icy road. and the good news, mom and baby are doing just fine this morning. by the way, we are in this for the long haul here in boston. these cold temperatures will last for several days. in fact, the first time we could possibly see temperatures above
freezing, not until saturday, george. >> gio, thanks very much. i'll take it over from here. we'll have the latest on the mounting terrorist threats at the winter olympics. two weeks away. preparations are ramping up to protect the site. that's not tamping down the competitive spirit of athletes speaking out for the first time about the threats. abc's brian ross here. good morning, brian. >> good morning, george. if the terrorists get their way, their prime targets would be the young athletes who worked so hard to get to the olympics. and there's no doubt security concerns are weighing on the american men and women who are heading to sochi. for the first time, women are being allowed to enter the ski jump competition and for the three american women who race down a 350-foot-high ski jump to qualify for the olympics, not a lot seems to scare them. even the news out of sochi. >> there you go. >> i've been watching the news. i'm reading about it and, unfortunately, it's just something that you have to deal with and keep plugging along. >> reporter: it took a long
legal battle for the women announced wednesday to be allowed into the olympic event and they told abc news, they have no intention of letting the terror threats distract them. >> security isn't my top concern >> the only thing i said is to my family is bring a jacket that doesn't scream "america." >> reporter: but authorities say the threats are real. still no progress in tracking down the alleged suicide bomber who authorities believe is already in sochi. and the white house reported an increase in telltale signs of terror attack planning. >> we have seen an uptick in threat reporting prior to the olympics, which is, of course, of concern. >> on a positive note the olympic torch relay continues across russia. so far without incident before it heads next week into dagestan and chechnya which are the strongholds of the terror groups that have threatened to disrupt the olympics with suicide bombers. >> they are, brian, thanks very much. to josh now with that
josh. >> 23 people have been hurt. >> more than half of the greyhound bus passengers have been transferred to area hospitals after a terrifying ordeal. a man on board grabbed the wheel and yelled i'm going to flip this bus. >> i remember hearing screaming. i realize we were not on the road anymore. i thought we were all going to die. >> he was hit all in the face, the head, and the bus driver was saying somebody get him off of me. we all tried to run up to the front and get the guy off him. >> reporter: they helped the driver prevent the bus from veering into oncoming traffic. nearly flipping over before crashing into a barrier. the suspect and the girlfriend fled into the desert before being arrested a short time later by police. that highway, interstate 10, just west of phoenix shut down for 30 minutes so those injured could be flown to nearby hospitals. the bus driver is being hailed a hero for keeping that bus up
right and preventing any serious injuries. massive fire fight over night in dallas. these flames quickly spread through an entire block of condos. destroyed the entire complex. most of the units, in fact, were being renovated. no word yet on what started that fire. >> in mississippi, a powerful explosion, you see it there. tore through a biodiesel plant. local state of emergency had to be declared. big scare for passengers on boeing's new 787 dreamliner. they were about to take off when they saw something gushing from the plane's wing. abc's jim avila shows us. >> reporter: passengers on board a norwegian 787 were about to take off from bangkok when they saw this outside their window. fuel poring out of a wing on a dreamliner right on to the runway. the 285 passengers were evacuated without incident. but for boeing and its plane of the future dubbed the dreamliner for all of its creature comforts and fuel economy, reliability
remains a problem. >> you know, the only problem with the 787 is that it's a new airplane and new airplanes get a lot of attention especially ones that are so uniquely built. >> reporter: in july, in japan a 787 traveling from tokyo to boston was forced to turn around over canada after a fuel pump problem was detected. a week before that, a fire on an empty dreamliner forced heathrow to close both of its runways. the dreamliner was grounded for three months last year after concerns about overheating lithium battery, a nippon airways flight was forced to make an emergency landing and evacuate after in-flight alarms located a battery fault prior to takeover. panic on this japanese airliner when smoke in the cabin forced the evacuation chutes to open and passengers to clamor for the exits. as for this latest runway fuel spill, boeing told abc news, it is working with norwegian on this issue and the passengers were never in danger.
they said the pilots would have seen a cockpit warning before taking off with that much fuel leaking. most of these issues have been minor but this being the age of youtube not a good time for such a rough launch for such an important plane. josh? >> they are adding up. jim avila, thank you for that. a new battleground in fight over same-sex marriage. virginia's attorney general said his state's voter-approved ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional and he will no longer defend it. similar bans were recently struck down in three other states. finally, as if we needed it, scientific proof that texting while you walk makes you walk funny. of course, you remember this. >> oh, yeah. >> yeah, the girl who just walked herself into a fountain texting in a mall. scientists in australia apparently with a lot of time on their hands decided we needed more research on the topics. so after lengthy experiments and measurements, we're told, they've now confirmed it's ir
virtually impossible to text and walk in a straight line. even just reading on your phone can affect your balance. it's texting and walking strategies for posture control. so it's science, people. it's science. >> it's like a obstacle course on the sidewalk. you're dodging people. >> i smell a segment 13b next week. >> thank you, josh. we have a health alert now about soda and cancer. consumer reports is out about a chemical known to cause tumors in mice can reach potentially dangerous levels in some of our more popular drinks. richard besser here with the details. what is the chemical? >> the chemical is called 4mei and it's a by-product -- process used to make the caramel coloring that turns our sodas brown. some feel that high levels of this can cause tumors. high levels in mice have been shown to cause lung cancer. california was concerned enough that they've set a level for this. now, consumer reports tested more than 100 products and found that some levels were high.
>> in which sodas? >> they said that pepsi, pepsi's 1 and goya's -- multi goya had the highest level. we reached out to those companies. goya had no comment. pepsi said they're in compliance with the law, that you would have to drink much more of this soda than people consume to cause a problem. >> and the fda, the feds have not found that this is a dangerous chemical. >> it's hard. we really have to go with animal studies to look at risk. the fda says the current consumption is not an issue. you would have to drink thousands of cans a day to reach the levels that the mice were getting. >> you still think soda is a problem. >> yeah, i don't recommend that people drink a lot of soda. you have an occasional soda, it doesn't matter which one you'll have you're going to be fine. water, bubbly or flat, the best way to go. here is another reason if you're concerned go for those beverages. >> thanks very much, rich besser. now to courtney love giving emotional testimony in her own defense in a landmark libel suit. her former lawyer charging she defamed him in one of her tweets.
the case is a first of its kind ever to go to trial. abc's nick watt has the story. ♪ >> reporter: the queen of grunge moved from the stage to the stand. sued for allegedly libeling a lawyer on twitter and, yep, that's now called twibel. >> i think courtney love is potentially in trouble here. in a 2010 tweet love suggested that rhonda holmes took a bribe and backed out of a legal battle she was waging with managers of the kurt cobain's estate, her late husband, the nirvana legend. >> i think courtney's testimony today on the stand made pretty clear that she made the statements that she's accused of making that she accused rhonda of being bought off. >> reporter: if love loses this case could change twitter forever. if those 140 characters can really be held against you in a court of law. >> this is a groundbreaking case that's going to set the parameters. >> reporter: twitter has been up and running nearly eight year, nearly half a billion tweets sent a day but this is the first
twibel case ever to make it to a u.s. court. the front woman was cross-examined by this guy. >> the jury is going to have to decide whether there's anything special about twitter. when you make false statements of fact about somebody that hurts their reputation, are you responsible for them just as you would be anyplace else? >> reporter: love at times emotional told the court she's useless with computers. thought she was just sending a personal message and quickly deleted the tweet that she has called just an opinion and she says, the internet is full of opinion and exaggeration. for "good morning america," nick watt, abc news, los angeles. >> a lot of people watching this quite closely to get a look at the trial. this is an interesting story you have. >> yeah, it's a very interesting concept. curious to see what everybody thinks about it. now to a new store selling old food. americans waste billions of dollars a year throwing out food that is past its sell by date but most of that is actually
still good to eat. the former president of trader's joe grocery store has come up with a way to cut down on all that waste. it is a staggering number, 40% of food produced in america each year wasted. that's 160 billion pounds of food in the trash. the main culprit, this, the sell by dates. >> i'm very conscious of health issues. and i would never eat that. >> reporter: right now, 90% of us are throwing out food. not realizing the fda says most products past their label's prime are generally still safe to eat. >> there is no correlation between an expiration date and the sell by and best buy dates. they are not indications of food safety. >> reporter: so this morning, doug rauch, the former head of trader joe's, is set to launch a new store that will only sell food other chains deem unsellable.
>> these are guidelines that grocers use to sell something when it's at its peak, maximum flavor and a day or two after that is still a good product. >> reporter: the plan is to buy up outdated, damaged or blemished food from grocery store, restaurants and producers and sell it at a grocery store and restaurant he's calling "daily table." >> the idea behind the daily table is to bring affordable nutrition down to the inner cities in america and offers it for pennies on the dollar. >> reporter: the first daily table will open its doors in dorchester, massachusetts, this may. and if it does well, look for more daily tables around the country. >> need to know more. need to know more. as long as it's safe but -- >> which are safe and which ones aren't? >> exactly. >> and the food is generally safe, they say. generally is a very vague term. >> well, and the labeling. if there is a labeling issue maybe we can fix the labeling issue rather than guess. >> i'm all about not wasting. >> absolutely. >> we'll need a follow-up here. >> yeah.
>> first, another check of the weather over with ginger. >> the big fight in our house because ben does not like to save things. he throws it out. i'm like probably to the bad point. all right, let's talk about weather before we all get ill. we'll look at houston because this morning a winter storm warning that's in effect. they'll get some freezing rain that will accumulate to almost a quarter inch of ice early tomorrow morning going to be messy. houston, almost three years since you've seen this type of winter storm watch or warning and then we've got that dry and windy west, los angeles, 74 today. we go in a little, offshore flow not looking good. yellow is a blowing dust advisory. plenty of fire danger too. your local forecast in 30 seconds. first coldest cities brought to you by mazda.

sara hayes is right outside one of their homes getting it done. >> good morning! >> good morning. >> nice to see you. are you guys ready? >> those two sisters about to get, again, a really great makeover. you'll be able to take home some tips. i guarantee you. we've got the glam squad on it. >> and reveal it throughout the morning. we will begin with our exclusive interview with the wife of that florida man shot to death in a movie theater by a man allegedly angry that he was texting. nicole oulson was standing right next to her husband, chad, when he was killed and she was injured herself. we're going to talk to her in a moment. but first abc's matt gutman with the story. >> reporter: nicole and chad oulson, new parents to 2-year-old alexis, had a rare chance for a movie date on
january 13th to "lone survivor" at a local theater in tampa, florida. the movie hasn't started but the screen had lit up with announcements like this asking folks to power down phones but oulson was reportedly texting his daughter's baby-sitter. his daughter wasn't feeling well. sitting behind them curtis reeves who police say became increasingly agitated. >> curtis reeves asked him a few times to please turn off his phone, chad decided not to. >> reporter: according to police reeves said he went to get the manager but returned alone and the two got into an argument. curtis reeves had allegedly pulled his .38 handgun firing a single bullet hitting chad in the chest and nicking nicole's finger as she tried to protect her husband. reeves was arrested on the scene. >> no bond. >> reporter: at a court hearing wearing a green suicide prevention gown he was charged with second degree murder and faces a possible sentence of life in prison if convicted.
he is currently being held without bond. his attorney says he might use florida's controversial stand your ground law as a defense. >> he was hit with -- in the face with an unknown object. at that point in time he has every right to defend himself. >> somebody throws popcorn and, i'm not sure who threw the popcorn and then, bang, he was shot. >> reporter: a family is mourning the loss of a beloved husband and a doting father. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, miami. >> and joining us now, nicole oulson, along with her attorney, t.j. grimaldi. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> nicole, our sincere silver condolences. i hope you have felt the well wishes of everyone around the country. we can see that you are still on the mend. how are you bearing up? >> hanging in there, yeah. the gunshot wound to my finger is the least of my worries right now. that will heal. the real pain is my heart and that will take a long time, if ever, to get over. >> that's understandable.
i know your only major concern is your beautiful little girl alexis. how is she? >> staying strong for her. she's luckily thankfully at a young age where i don't think that this is going to have as much of an impact on her right now. she doesn't know what's going on. but there are times at night especially that was my husband's ritual to put her to bed and it's times like that where before the last thing he would say to her before tucking her in is that you make me so happy, daddy's so happy, lexi and she would say, me happy too, daddy. lexi happy too and those are the times that i'll never be able to replace. that's when it's hard. >> cling to those memories. it was a rare chance. you had the little girl. it was a rare chance for you and your husband to have some alone time and you decided to go to a movie. tell us about that. >> it was. yes. we're on different schedules. he works weekends and i work monday through friday. about once a quarter i have to
work a rotating saturday so in that situation i get to choose a day off during the week and, of course, i choose monday to be with him. we take the daughter to the day care and we just wanted to have a good day together. spend some quality time with the love of my life. >> you go to the movie theater. you sit down. he want -- you want to check in with the baby-sitter because you don't leave her alone that much. can you tell us what happened inside that movie theater, nicole. >> we got there a little early, just to get some concessions and relax a little bit. we were watching the previews. just having a good time. it was the first time we've actually agreed on a movie together. usually i'm dragging him to a chick flick or he's dragging me to a movie but we were really both excited and into this movie so we were just sitting there, you know, getting ready for the movie to start, respectful when the movie is on we put our phones away so he took a couple seconds just to check the phone to make sure there was no messages about our daughter, you know, before putting his phone away and the blink of an eye, 30
seconds and it just shattered my world. >> just because of being on the phone and i know that it's an ongoing investigation and that's why t.j. is here. there are some things i can't ask you and you can't answer because of the investigation. there have been many reports that there was popcorn thrown that there was something that was thrown. can you shed any light on to that, t.j. >> i can and i can't in the sense that there -- it is an ongoing criminal investigation as you indicated so there are certain facts out there in the media that are accurate then there are other conclusions not necessarily accurate but what i can say to the popcorn issue is this. in my opinion it doesn't matter if it was popcorn, twizzlers, a hot cup of coffee, there is absolutely no reason this should have escalated to the level it did, especially as quickly as it did. knowing also that he's probably the individual that is trained the most to be able to de-escalate a situation. being an ex-cop and being in
charge of security at a major amusement park, he should know how to bring something back down to a calm level, not escalate it himself. >> i think that was part of what was so surprising to many people when they heard this story. nicole, is there any reason why the man who shot your husband would have felt threatened? >> absolutely not. not in the least. i never expected it. never could have imagined it. i mean, it was a couple of words, no threats, no harm, no nothing. >> and the gentleman is 71 years old but he's a big guy. he's not elderly by any stretch of the imagination. i know that we have heard, again, that the stand your ground which is very controversial, t.j., that that could be used as a defense. >> you know, we've kind of come -- become accustomed to that in florida specifically so we've discussed that with nicole and as a firm we've realized that there's an attorney out there trying to defend him and he's going to do everything he
possibly can to advocate for his client. however, as a lot of people have been discussing throughout the country recently, there is just no way that can stand up in this case. the stand your ground is a defensive mechanism in the sense that it allows you to protect yourself with like force. if you feel force coming, you can have force in return. if you feel deadly force coming, you can use that to protect yourself. but it's not an offensive thing and with what happened that's happened in that movie theater this day, that's what happened here. he was the aggressor. he was the offender and took it to another level. to use that as a defense is unbelievable. it's almost impossible. >> i know you share those thoughts. tell us about your husband. tell us about chad. i understand he liked to race motorbikes. >> motorcycles. motorbikes, that was his life. he said many a times he was over 40 when we had our daughter if
he had known it would have been this great he wouldn't have waited this long. he was the type of guy that would go to pick up to go food and start chatting with somebody for two seconds, i mean, while picking up food and they would become friends for life. we'd have the sprinkler guy come out to change sprinklers and he was a best friend, that type of guy, outgoing, friendly, just, you know, easy to get along with. everybody loved him. >> have you felt the love from people all around the country? >> it's been amazing. truly amazing. it's unbelievable. >> well, i hope it has brought you some measure of comfort. i'm glad your sister melissa is here with you and i know there are people that are helping out as they can on facebook and that and i know part of the reason you came here is that you're hoping to see justice and what is that for you? >> for him to stay behind bars for the rest of his life. he brought an unfair life sentence to me to have to raise my daughter alone, to have to live without the love of my life, for my daughter to grow up without her daddy by her side for graduation and marriage and
it was so unnecessary. it was for no reason so i want him behind bars and to be punished for his senseless act. >> your strength is admirable, nicole and just know that all of us here and around the country, around the world are thinking of you and lifting you up. you and alexis. >> thank you. >> t.j., nicole, all the best going forward. >> thank you. >> let's go over to ginger. yeah, robin, as nice as hawaii sounds we have a serious situation shaping up there too. we wanted to show you some video. this is the wave height. that could have reached 40, even 50 feet high. now, some surfers love that but if you're on the coast anywhere from north oahu but at the islands, all of them have some sort of high surf advisory or warning and florida this morning waking up with freeze watches, windchill advisories throughout the southeast. look at miami, actual air temperature, 48. tampa, 38. tallahassee, 31. so not too warm until the weekend back in florida.

tmz cameras catching the outspoken dance teacher as she left court. >> she pulls up in a fancy car waltzing in with her attorney. she plays the dumb blond thing. >> reporter: according to a complaint 42-year-old highland, the mother of two girls both dancers on the show, was accused by miller of assault and harassment which highland was later charged with and pleaded not guilty. the incident occurred last november during a taping of the popular lifetime reality show. >> i have to stand by what i believe in and i believe that justice -- >> is going to be served. >> well, yes. >> reporter: in the complaint, miller claims that highland struck miller with her hand causing bruising to her cheek and that highland pulled miller's hair causing substantial pain which reportedly led to highland's arrest. >> apparently abby was bringing in other girls to highlight other dancers on the show and kelly, being one of the stage
moms on the show, it got a little heated. >> reporter: but highland's attorney tells a different story. >> miss miller's extremely aggressive and extremely curt in her words and hasn't gone to the physical end until recently. >> reporter: in the show's fourth season "dance moms" will show they're not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the loud mouth leader to make sure their daughters all shine on stage. miller also made some stunning allegations to reporters outside of court saying she brought highland to court for the well-being of highland's children who she claims are in danger under their mother's care. they're expected back in court on march 10th. lara? >> thank you very much. coming up, there it is, ready. it's our glam van. we're giving two lucky moms a mega-makeover. i dare say of a lifetime. stay with us. ♪ you won't remember , we know you can't afford wrong turns on the road to your future. that's why we build tools like our career guidance system.
